The human body is designed to move. In order to replenish and maintain themselves, bones, muscles, and connective tissues all require the stimulation that movement provides. Without proper movement and stimulation, our bodies deteriorate and cease to function as they should.
Humans have evolved over the millennia in an environment that required our ancestors to move! We had to run, jump, stoop, lean, throw, climb, pick up, and walk if we wanted to eat! Our hungry bellies propelled us to move. The human musculoskeletal system is amazing. More than our brains, it has allowed us to dominate the planet.
When the body is out of alignment it begins to compensate for the imbalance, causing muscle tightness, decreased flexibility, and eventually the onset of pain. If left untreated, this can also lead to injury and or poor athletic performance.
Based on the teachings from the Egoscue University. After a thorough assessment of what your pain and/or misalignments issues are, we usually begin with a postural assessment. You will take front, side, and rear view photographs of your standing posture, and I will thoroughly evaluate them against the functional design blueprint, and explore what is going on. […]
Postural alignment therapy is based on the blueprint of the human body. By laying the functional design blueprint over the actual posture, the misalignments, if any, are identified, and the path to correcting them becomes clear. There is no guesswork. The course of action is different for each individual. This blueprint is the gift of your ancestors. […]
It’s the position (posture) of our bodies that causes various conditions like arthritis, back pain, headaches, scoliosis, and stenosis. Once your body is out of alignment, you can’t just start exercising because the misalignments are habitual. First, you must straighten your posture. If you try to exercise first, you will reinforce the misalignments and eventually […]
As an athlete, what do I gain by incorporating Postural Healing into my training program? Better Race Times – Align the joints, allow the proper muscles to do their intended jobs, and the result is more efficient movement. More efficient movement means requiring less energy to create the same output. The extra energy can be used elsewhere to […]
